If you plan on buying a new vehicle, you probably want to sell your current car. Knowing how to get the most possible money for used cars can help you make a good deal, so listen to this advice from the experts here at I.G. Burton Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM of Smyrna.
Clean Your Car
It’s easier to fetch a better price for your car if it looks good. Clean your car inside and out before you sell it so that a buyer knows that the vehicle was well cared for. This can also help you spot damage, and you can decide whether it’s worth it to fix minor issues before you sell the car.
Do Some Research
It’s easier than ever to figure out approximately how much your vehicle is worth. You can look up your vehicle online and get a rough estimate of how much similar models are going for. Our website even offers a tool that helps you value your trade-in!
Store Your Vehicle Properly
If you’re planning to sell your car, keep it protected. The weather and other vehicles can do a number on your vehicle in the short time that you’re trying to line up a buyer. If you have a garage or a cover for your car, it’s a good idea to use them.
Organize Your Paperwork
Used car buyers are happy to know that a vehicle has been well cared for, which can increase the value of your car. If you have paperwork that shows that your car has gotten oil changes on time and stuck to a routine maintenance schedule, keep it handy in case a buyer wants to see it.
Keep Taking Good Care of Your Vehicle
You’re selling your car, but you can’t neglect it while it’s still in your possession. If you notice any issues, get to a mechanic. People don’t want to buy a used car and immediately pay a big service bill.
